Who can be Married at Norbury?
The basic rule is this:
- You can be married at Norbury if you are resident in the parish at the time of the calling of the Marriage Banns in church, or if you are on the Electoral Roll of the church.
- But new rules recently introduced nationally also allow
marriage in a parish church even if you are not resident in the
parish, as long as you have a particular "qualifying
connection". So you can now get married at Norbury if one of
- was baptised or prepared for confirmation here;
- has ever lived in this parish for six months or more;
- has at any time regularly attended public worship here for six months or more;
- has a parent who has lived in the parish for six months or more in your lifetime;
- has a parent who has regularly attended public worship here for six months or more in your lifetime;
- have parents or grandparents who were married in the parish.
- In certain circumstances you can be married at Norbury by Archbishop's Licence, no matter where you live, but this process is lengthy and complex, and there is a big extra fee
